Review Philosophy and Rating System

My Review Philosophy:

I believe that reading is subjective so while I do assign a number rating I rely more on a pro and con system.  What could be a book ruin-er for me might not even raise your eyebrows and vice versa.  I believe that if I accept a book for review the expectation is for an honest review which isn't always going to be a positive review.  However, if I don't like a book I'll give my reasons so that any readers can have a clear picture of the book to see if it would work for them.

You can reach me at or on Twitter at KEPitts1.  At this point I can only accept books for review consideration in hard copy or Kindle format.  Please contact me if you have questions.

Rating System

I struggled with the star system for awhile but just was never comfortable with it.  Instead I've changed my rating system to reflect what I'd say if you asked me what I thought of the book as soon as I finished it!

DNF - Didn't Finish. 

Not for Me - I kept hoping it would improve or engage me but it never did

It's Okay - There were glimmers of good or there was a character or subplot that I enjoyed but unfortunately the negatives outweighed the positives.

Liked It - This is a book where the negatives and positives were about equal.  I didn't dislike it but it's not one that I will be rereading anytime soon.

Very Good - Really good!  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one and couldn't wait to get back to if it I had to put it down.

Loved It - I loved this book!  It has a home on my keeper shelf and most likely at least 1 friend or relative will be receiving this a gift!
